We recently updated our 16 year old son's room.
It really needed a paint job and just freshened up.
No planked walls or chevron designs.
He's actually very sentimental and likes to be
surrounded by the things he loves and that
have good memories for him.
His favorite sports teams, Star Wars, Legos, books,
maps from his favorite video games are just
a few of the things he has loved over the years.
don't get me started ~ the tears will start to roll
He informed me that he likes modern design.
such a traitor : )
So I tried to incorporate a lot of white with his
traditional furniture to give it a more modern feel.
We purchased his dresser and beds when he was 5 years old.
The beds were originally configured as bunk beds.
At one point, I mentioned to him that maybe
we could look for different bedroom furniture that
would be more modern.
He said "I think my furniture is fine."
see? mister sentimental !
His desk and chair are from Ikea and luckily
fit perfectly at the end of his bed.
His room has this large window that looks out over our backyard.
He has a gorgeous view of the Dogwood tree which is blooming now.
i'm sure he doesn't even notice
His room is small so we use the closet space for his dresser.
Most of his clothes are kept in the drawers and the
little bit of dressy clothes he has are in another closet.
These throw pillows are really for me.
They're from Homegoods and I love them.
I think they give the room a little pizazz.
you know he's going to make his bed everyday
and place the pillow ever so perfectly ~ ha
It's was a labor of love for the sweetest son
a mama could ever have!
~ Thanks for coming by ~
Have a great day!
